Data Center Cooling

Stainless Steel Liquid Cooling System Components for Data Centers

Liquid Cooling Becoming More Prevalent

Liquid cooling is quickly becoming the preferred and primary method for managing the heat generated from the high-powered CPU and GPU chips utilized for AI across the expanding footprint of both hyperscale and colocation data centers. Steel & O’Brien is uniquely positioned to equip providers of data center liquid cooling systems and in particular, direct liquid cooling (DCL) designs, with a variety of stainless steel components and custom assemblies. 


Stainless Steel Fittings, Tubing, and Valves

Steel & O’Brien has established itself as a leader in providing stainless steel components for liquid cooling systems used to cool data centers. Stainless steel has quickly become the material of choice for many data center cooling components based on its hygienic properties, compatibility with coolants, durability, and cost. We have experience equipping providers of data center liquid cooling systems offering rear-door, direct-to-chip (D2C), and immersion systems to both hyperscale and colocation data centers. We have a broad offering of stainless steel products commonly used in Coolant Distribution Units (CDU’s), in-row manifolds, and in-rack manifolds for servers including:

Stainless Steel Fittings

Stainless Steel Tubing

Stainless Steel Valves

Stainless Steel Strainers
